IAN WRIGHT: WENGER SHOULD LEAVE ARSENAL

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has asked that long time manager of the club Arsene Wenger exit the Emirates Stadium.


The retired player turned top pundit claims that the club are in a crisis from top to bottom so the Frenchman should leave for it to be sorted out.

Arsenal suffered a second straight defeat in the Premier League on Sunday as Liverpool tore them apart at Anfield 4-0. This is a season where the Gunners’ fans were hopeful that things could change and that their Europa League involvement would help them push more for the Premier League as they relegate European football for now.

The club has not won the title since 2004 and it seems this would not change anytime soon.

“It’s an absolute nightmare,” Wright said. The legend, who scored 128 goals for Arsenal, says Wenger needs to go as he does not believe in him anymore.

“Do I think he should go? I’d like him to go because I do not believe now he can motivate the players. It’s for himself and for his own sanity…..That team has not played for Wenger for years.” Read more »

WHAT KLOPP NEEDS TO DO

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp waltzed into the team with much fanfare.


In the later part of his first season, he built up so much expectation at Anfield. He helped the Reds dream again after too many disappointments. However the dream is yet to turn into silverware, till date.

The Liverpool squad needs more spine as they are decent to an extent. A strong defender who is actually good would be helpful. A holding midfielder, who would allow the playmaker push forward, is essential and then a consistent proven striker to finish off the moves.

Most of the players are injury prone. This played a large part in killing off the momentum last season. The inconsistencies the team showed this season ended is laughable. They can defeat the league leaders away then lose to the small boys at home in the following game.

With Dominic Solanke set to join the team, Klopp needs to look for more. More! Read more »

LIVERPOOL CONTINUE TOP SIX BRILLIANT FORM

Liverpool FC continued their brilliant form against the top six in the Premier League with their 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Saturday.

Goals from Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino, Senegal international Sadio Mane and summer signing Georginio Wijnaldum ensured the Reds returned to the top four.

The win ensures Jurgen Klopp’s men did the double over Coach Arsene Wenger and his boys – considering that they humbled them at the start of the campaign. However, it also questions the level of inconsistency of the team, considering that the same team crumbled when they face Leicester City.

Wenger had to make difficult calls ahead and during the clash. He left out his best player Alexis Sanchez – and there have been reports of an altercation between both parties. He was clueless on how to manage Liverpool’s dominance in the first half of the game. When the Chile international joined in the second half, he brought the much-needed spark in the attack and he was obviously involved in the only goal the Gunners scored.

“It was one of the best games we have played so far because of the strength of our opponent. We did really well. We had hard words after the defeat at Leicester. We analyzed it and that wasn’t enjoyable. We had another opportunity and we took it today. It’s the rollercoaster of the Premier League,” Klopp said after the game. Read more »

Karius Speaks about How Klopp was Influential in Liverpool Move

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has revealed that it was manager Jurgen Klopp who convinced of the move to the Premier League outfit.


The German was signed from Schalke in the summer for around £5 million. He needs no introduction to the Premier League after having been part of the Manchester City youth team for a couple of years before moving onto Germany. Fans would not have imaginedKarius being first-team player given his significantly lower transfer fee. However, he has been able to quietly replace Simon Mignolet from the starting line-up in the last few weeks.

Karius has certainly rewarded the faith shown by the manager and it may take a serious blunder in order to drop him right now. One of the reasons for Klopp showing a lot of faith in the goalkeeper was because he knew him from his time in German football with Borussia Dortmund. It is clear that Klopp has been tracking the 23-year-old for some time now. Read more »

Jurgen Klopp Not Prepared to Sell Danny Ings

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insisted that striker Danny Ings remains part of his plans despite the player getting very little playing time under his management.


Even though he was signed from Burnley on a free transfer, Liverpool were then forced to pay a substantial transfer fee as training compensation since the player was under 23 years of age when he made the move to Anfield.Ings was seen as a replacement for Daniel Sturridge once he gets experience. Liverpool signed him on the back of one good season in the Premier League and it was recently rumoured that they were starting to regret the decision.

Even Daniel Sturridge fails to get game time came under Jurgen Klopp and the German manager has made it clear that he does not want to have a regular centre forward in his lineup. Roberto Firmino has been the forward choice at the start of this campaign. The Brazilian is not a regular number nine and this has allowed Liverpool to play a system that was so successful for Spanish football during the World Cup 2010 campaign. Results have been mixed at the start of the campaign and there have been reports that clubs like Sunderland were looking to captureIngs at least on a loan deal before the end of the campaign.

Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan wants to leave during the summer

Adam Bogdan has stated that he wants to leave Liverpool as quickly as possible so that he can get playing time at a new club.


The goalkeeper was brought in during Brendan Rogers tenure but has failed to make an impact at the club. Jurgen Klopp clearly does not trust him after he made some series of errors last season. And now the arrival of Loris Karius will certainly mean that Adam Bogdan will further down the pecking order.

The goalkeeper has stated that he needs playing time so as to rebuild his career and that it will be hard at Liverpool. He said that there are many goalkeepers ahead of him at Liverpool, and he will need some luck if he is going to get playing time at Liverpool. He believes that the best solution for him at the moment is to go out on loan so as to be able to play regularly.

He said that he want to prove to the Liverpool manager that he is a good player but for that, he will need to get playing time somewhere else.

Liverpool beat Villarreal to earn a place in the Europa League final

Liverpool managed to produce an outstanding display to help them beat Villarreal and secure a place in the Europa League final.

Again they will have to face Spanish opposition in Sevilla, but they will take confidence in the way they brush aside Villareal to win the game 3-0.


The game started well for Liverpool after Bruno Soriano scored an own goal to put the game leveled on aggregate. It all began with a Clyne cross that found Firmino. The latter headed the ball back into the danger area, but it was missed by Sturridge who was starting the game after having missed the first leg. Soriano could not clear the danger and instead bundled the ball in the back of his own net.

Liverpool were on fire after the goal and conceded to press for a second goal. The visitors could not cope with the intense pressure by Liverpool, which have become their trademark under Jurgen Klopp. Villareal could not cope with the intensity shown by the locals and began to grow frustrated.

Soldado was guilty of fouling two Liverpool players in the space of a few minutes. First, it will be DejanLovren who will face a tough challenge from the former Tottenham player and then it was Coutinho. This was clearly signs of frustration as the Spanish team failed to cope with the pressure of the home side.

Sturridge managed to score a goal in the 63rd minute following a precise through ball from Firmino. This was a well-deserved goal for Sturridge, who was back in the team.

However in the 71st minute, Villareal will have a player sent off because of a second bookable offence. This will definitely end the match as a contest and Lallana will score another goal for Liverpool to secure the victory.
